Good morning: Have you tried out a new restaurant lately? Maybe it’s been around for years, but you just never noticed it before. Imagine dining there and discovering that everything about it: the food, the ambience, and the serving staff was incredible. Wouldn’t the thought cross your mind, “If only someone had told me…

Good morning: Everyone will disappoint you. It doesn’t sound like a very upbeat way to begin a new day, but if you expect perfection in others, it’s true. Sooner or later everyone will disappoint you. The friend you count on to always be there night or day to help may not answer the phone. The…

Good morning: Have you ever been accused of being a militant? Usually a militant calls to mind someone looking for a fight to promote some radical political or social cause.

Good morning: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Some set a goal of losing weight or gaining muscle tone. Others wish to be more organized or less stressed.
